Reha Greenhouses has been a family-owned and operated retail greenhouse for nearly fifty years. Established by David and Donna Reha in 1974, the business is now owned and operated by the sixth of their eight daughters, Marianne Reha-Van Roekel and her husband Marty Van Roekel.
Through the years, Reha's has been the epitome of the term "family-operated." In addition to the eight Reha sisters who grew up assisting Dave and Donna in the greenhouses, four Van Roekel children were raised working among the plants. In addition to the Van Roekel children spending school and employment breaks helping out, Marianne's sister Annette made many an annual trek to Southeast Iowa to set up the retail store for spring, and her sister Rosanne and brother-in-law Paul retired to Iowa City from Seattle in 2021 to immediately become valuable members of the spring staff!
Now that all of their children are grown, college educated and on their own, Marianne and Marty have decided it's time to slow down and give extended family a break. Following the 2023 Mum season, the retail store at Reha Greenhouses will close for the year and will not reopen in 2024. While Reha Greenhouses will continue to grow quality annuals and perennials, it will be on a much smaller scale and for another retail outlet.
